Please join us for our upcoming events (listed below) and get involved in our Youth Ministry program.  We are a group of parish youth who share faith, fellowship, service and fun together.  All we need is a  Youth Ministry Permission Slip which you can bring with you the first time you come.  If you would like to be a part of any of our activities or if you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Maureen Stevens at olphmrsstevens@aol.com or 908-766-0244 ext. 26.

CYM BASKETBALL
We are inviting any 9th-12th grade youth interested in CYM basketball to please email olphmrsstevens@aol.com.

We have started with open gyms on Sundays from 6:30 – 8pm and then Thursdays from 7:30 – 9pm.  Our CYM coaches who commit so much of their time to the games and practices during the season are crazy busy this Fall so I am asking for parents to volunteer to supervise the open gyms so at least we can get the boys on the court and build their team morale.  You can access the Sign Up Genius HERE.

The one caveat is that all volunteers need to have fulfilled the diocesan requirement of Virtus and Fingerprinting.  If you still need the Virtus training please let Mrs. Stevens know and she will run a session for you.

Our CYM games won’t be starting for a few months.  Once the games are scheduled we will forward them to you.  The diocesan CYM Basketball Permission Slip needs to be returned to the YM office ASAP.

If you have any questions please feel free to call Mrs. Stevens at 908.432.4528.

October 30 (6:30-8:30)
Leave this night open for a YM event.
